    Default What If: Storm was in New X-Men by Grant Morrison?

    I started rereading Grant Morrison's New X-Men and I've been wondering what role Storm could have played if she was part of the main cast. A lot of the changes made in this run stuck around for the rest of the 2000s (Scemma, feline Beast, etc.), so I thought it'd be fun to think about where Storm would have ended up had she been included.

    She would have had the affair with Cyclops instead of Emma. It was the original plan before Claremont called dibs

    That would have been extremely uninteresting.

    Husband has affair with best friend who is also friends with his wife. It's still the soap opera Morrison wanted

    That affair would have ruined Storm as a character bc people would still be holding it against her 20 years later to this day

    How... does that even work? At least Emma had a troubled history with Jean so she wouldn't be too worried about her feelings.

    it sure would have. that's not even in her DNA to be trashy as such. emma made more sense.

    Scott and Storm would grow closer bc he wasnt connecting with Jean. They would start developing feelings for each other and their affair would have been physical rather than the psychic one he had with Emma

    Emma was never originally in the book until Morrison got it suggested by a fan as he had Storm, Moira and Colossus and nuRogue taken off his cast.

    The affair was never meant to be out of malice. It was meant to be about two people growing apart. And two people finding love (forbidden) with one another.

    Yeah... that worked much better with Emma than it would have with Ororo. For sure. Glad Claremont took Storm in that case.

    Not a fan of Cyclops cheating on Jean with Storm.

    BBBUUUUUTTTT...I like the idea of Storm and Cyclops being co-headmasters of Xavier's School.
    I've seen your end and it starts with you challenging me.
